    A experiência global em turismo rural e desenvolvimento sustentável de comunidades locais

    This conference, prepared as part of a 3-years research project on the “Overall Rural Tourism Experience” (ORTE) inthree Portuguese villages, offers an in depth discussion of the “rural tourism experience”, its manifestations, meanings, impacts and evolution. It intends to significantly contribute to current reflections on the potential and limitations of rural tourism as a development tool as well as to the identification of ways to maximize this potential in certain circumstances, through a more profound understanding of the dynamics of the “overall rural tourism experience”.

    Violence, genocide, wars, killings, feminicide, crime, deaths, and aesthetic representations in Latin America (19th-21st c.)

    We propose that this number be an interdisciplinary approach, one which makes use of history, sociology, anthropology, diplomacy, gender and otherness: aesthetic representations of any kind. The historical period that focuses on the eighth issue of Amerika goes from the nineteenth century to the present day. All the work relating to the past prior to the nineteenth century, linking it to the more recent periods, is welcome as well. This reflection is the product of the exchange and discussion between the University of Antioquia (Colombia) and the Université de Rennes 2 (France).

    The problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology

    Antropológicas Journal

    The journal Antropológicas is accepting proposals for publication in its next issue that will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology. Manuscripts should be submitted to the page http://revistas.rcaap.pt/antropologicas/login by the 28th of February of 2013. Antropológicas’ number 13th will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology, because since the academic statement of its field of knowledge, ethnographic practice and anthropological writing had many debates, both for the originality of the methodology and the scientific accuracy required by their professionals. Among social sciences, anthropology was the one where theoretical discussion about its rationale demanded a greater critical capacity, by placing into question its methodological grounds.

    Thinking rights in Latin America in the 20th century

    This conference purports to think about the right-wing in twentieth-century Latin America. We shall seek to discover whether the current Latin American right-wing movements are merely the prolongation of XIXth century conservatism, or if a series of events might explain the emergence of new actors in the XXth century. This will enable us to enquire into which geographical scale - national or continental - is relevant when examining this concept. We expect papers from scholars in various social sciences, based on monographic and comparative historical examples. Our purpose is to historicize the concept and the object.

    Pratiques et poétiques du chapitre du XIXe au XXIe siècle

    Bien qu'il soit un aspect évident de notre pratique de lecture quotidienne, le chapitre est un élément de poétique négligée par la critique, à l'exception de la thèse récente d'Ugo Dionne, La voie aux chapitres, consacrée aux modes de structuration romanesque dans l'Ancien Régime. Dionne y analyse comment le XIXe siècle voit une généralisation du chapitre, ce dernier devenant à la fois systématique et moins visible. Pourtant, le chapitre comme unité minimale du roman, comme scansion on élément structurel, sert de fil d'Ariane à l'écriture comme à la lecture. On voudrait ainsi esquisser une poétique du chapitre, en tenant ensemble les deux questions de la fabrique du texte et de sa réception, du chapitre utilisé comme moyen de production du sens et comme outil de lecture : telle est l'ambition de ce colloque.

    Confused interfaces: norms, classifications and the primacy of language in questions

    TansOceanik international seminar

    La proposition de cette rencontre et d’essayer de questionner les normes essentialisantes – telle qu’exprimées dans les discriminations raciales -, les classifications – qui excluent certaines couches de la population – et le primat du langage – qui évacue la cognition des expériences sensibles, telle la culture des signes des sourds. Nous proposons de croiser des expériences existentielles à la frontière de trois oppositions classiques : masculin/féminin, humain/non humain, vivant/mort en invitant des spécialistes travaillant sur des terrainsde contextes culturels différents à discuter entre eux et avec des philosophes et des psychanalystes.

    Education, ethics and politics in contemporary times

    Dans un moment où l’air du temps impose des ruptures (et pas encore une continuité) par rapport à l’ordre établi, la relation entre éthique, politique et éducation se donne à penser. Non pas comme « objet », mais comme interpellation vitale. La pensée française joue un rôle pivot en ce qui concerne les questions contemporaines d’intégration des différences culturelles (la philosophie de la différence) et de réflexion sur les enjeux politiques qui en découlent (l’idée d’une démocratie à venir).
